This is Sophia, a sweet cat who lives at our guest house in Chiang Mai! We call her “Thai Coconut” because she reminds us so much of our cat, Coconut. Almost every cat we have seen in Thailand has had a collar and good health. ♥️🥥

OK gang, I need your help: let’s find a forever home for the king and queen, Rey and Reina! Please tag everyone you know in Southern California below, and let them know that these two perfect besties are ready to find their family! Let’s spread the word as far as we can for these sweet babies, who have overcome so much since being rescued as infants. 🐱🐱 Rey was found on the verge of death at the border of Tijuana along with his litter mates, who did not survive. He fought so hard to become the robust, healthy boy he is today! Reina was found in the middle of a massive rainstorm; her mom was seen taking the siblings away from the flash flood, but she never returned for poor little Reina. Now she’s the happiest, most loved little girl! These solo babies made it to our nursery, thrived, and became best friends—and now it’s time for us to get them a perfect home. TAG A FRIEND in Cali! ☀️ If you’re interested in adoption, please apply at orphankittenclub.org/adopt ☀️
When traveling abroad, I always deeply enjoy learning about regional cat welfare issues. I like to witness the relationship between humans and cats, to observe how cats have carved out a place in each community, to discover the challenges these cats face, and to meet the local people who are working hard to protect them. My new video “Cat Beach” takes viewers inside of @catbeachsanctuary, a unique rescue project saving cats and kittens on a beachfront in Malaysia. You can watch the video on my @YouTube channel, “Kitten Lady,” or type in the direct link: bit.ly/catbeachvideo 🐱
Huge, exciting news: I wrote a children’s book! 😻 Kitten Lady’s Big Book of Little Kittens has been such a joy to write, and it’s available for pre-order NOW at KittenLady.org/kidsbook - or just click the link in my bio! In this adorable and educational book, readers will learn all about saving little lives, from rescue all the way to adoption.

This is Oosa, a beautiful cat living at a dive shop on Sunrise Beach. Here on Koh Lipe they do have many cats and dogs living outside, but they also have a strong sterilization program, and the locals we’ve spoken with say how balanced the cat population is thanks to that effort. Though they’re outside, every dog and cat on the island does have a home of sorts—whether it’s a house, a restaurant, a fruit stand, or a beachfront shop. Once the cats and dogs are sterilized, they get an identifying mark. See that mark on Oosa’s hip? That means she was spayed in 2554, which is 2011 (Thailand follows a Buddhist calendar.) In more recent years they’ve switched to ear tattoos, but the original animals from the program all carry these marks, and Oosa is one of the first! The dive shop worker says: “Oosa is the boss here. We used to have a dive shop dog, but Oosa moved in and kicked him out, so he lives next door now. Now we have a dive shop cat!” Show ‘em who’s boss, Oosa!

Happy beyond words. Thrilled to share that my partner
@iamthecatphotographerand I are making it officially official! You may know that we share a love of animal advocacy and rescue, but we share so much more than that. One of our favorite activities to do together is kayaking and snorkeling, and it’s something we’ve enjoyed since the very beginning of our relationship. Yesterday we rented kayaks and made our way out to Koh Kra, a tiny uninhabited island off Koh Lipe, Thailand. We snorkeled in the clear, warm water and saw an abundance of brightly colored tropical fish, so beautiful and free. We hiked the small island and when we emerged on the other side we saw the most breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea, turquoise and pristine. As we sat soaking it all in, Andrew turned to me with tears in his eyes, kneeled down, and said the sweetest words I’ve ever heard. His heart is solid gold, and I am lucky to share my life such a pure and compassionate human. ✨ Here’s to being partners in rescue, and partners in life! ✨
Koh Lipe Satun Thailand
We have arrived on the beautiful island of Koh Lipe, Thailand! This super sweet street cat followed us into our chalet right away to enjoy some cuddle time. And to my surprise and delight, he is neutered! Someone on this tiny island is lookin’ out for the cats, and it’s awesome to see! 🙀😻

I can’t wait to tell you guys all about the important work that
@catbeachsanctuaryis doing for the felines of Penang, Malaysia! This rescue organization is home to more than 300 cats, including tons of neonatal kittens, medical cases, and cats from the street. They offer fostering and adoption (if you’re local, please get involved!) but also provide a permanent sanctuary to the felines in their care who are not adopted. And no, you’re not seeing things...they are located literally right on the most beautiful beach at the edge of the Penang National Forest. Wow! My next video will be an inside look at their project and how you can help. For now, follow them at @catbeachsanctuary and send some love their way — they could use our help with donations via their website and even on-site volunteering. Stay tuned for more! 🐱 #catbeachsanctuary #catbeachpenang

Every time I travel abroad, I’m warned that I’ll hate seeing cats on the street. Sometimes that is true, and sometimes it isn’t. I have a lot of feelings about it, ranging from concern to happiness to curiosity! While there are many, many cats outdoors in Malaysia and relatively fewer resources for cats than in the United States, there is also a culture here of living in harmony with cats outdoors—a true acceptance of cats as part of the community. They are not a burden or a problem to be solved, they are a beloved part of the natural landscape. There is something quite beautiful and refreshing about a culture that does not attempt to control all non-human life; while these cats may not have a municipal facility to take them in, they also do not risk euthanasia simply for existing outside of the context of human ownership, as is the case in so many American cities. Sure, I do see some fleas and ear mites, but I also see kindness, full bellies, and much food and water. It’s easy to come to another country and shudder because things are different, but it’s more useful (in my opinion) to remove ourselves from preconceptions and ask what we can learn from the differences in how humans and animals relate. If there’s one thing I think western cat culture could stand to learn, it’s that just because every cat isn’t ”owned” or living in an indoor-only home doesn’t mean they are unloved or undeserving of life. Pictured here: a beautiful, bootyful copper-eyed fella I met at a meat market in Penang.🐱
